I hope someone can help with an issue with my sky broadband. My partners son is a pain in the ass with downloading torrents constantly which makes the connection slow for everyone else, this wasnt a huge problem until he bought himself a homeplug giving him constant access from his bedroom (no wireless signal up there due to wall construction in building).
Is there a way i can limit his bandwidth somehow via the router settings (sagem f@st 2504 router) or some software that would do the trick?
Thanks in advance!

Re: Limiting Access
The only sure way is to pull his connection to the router.
You might want to have a word with him and explain that his actions are making everyone else's experience miserable. He should limit the download/upload speed of his torrents to allow some bandwidth to be left for the other users. This is fairly easy to do on most torrent clients.
You should also explain to him that downloading copyright material is illegal and if caught he could be charged a considerable sum. You might want to have a look at this thread and others on the same subject.

Re: Limiting Access
In the absence of any other way around it looks like i will have to limit his download / upload speed myself then and hope he dpesnt notice.

Re: Limiting AccessThanks for the advice, already been down the route of explaining illegality of most torrents and how hes making the connection crap for everyone else, doesnt care.
You will be aware that it is you who will be fined if illegal downloading is proved on your connection and it is possible your name has already been splashed across the web as an alleged illegal downloader.
